Season 3 Behind the Scenes

GCR 3.1 Charlene Li and Meredith Gould: Social Media and the Church

Can real community form through a Twitter feed? What do you do if your church gets a bad review on the Internet? How can we use social media tools in our church contexts? Can our church communities ignore the Internet any longer? How can we, as religious leaders, navigate the changes that social media presents?

Join Carol Howard Merritt and Landon Whitsitt as they welcome Charlene Li to talk about these questions. Charlene Li is the co-author of Groundswell, the author of Open Leadership, and the the founder of the Altimeter Group.

Also joining us is Meredith Gould, the Abbess of the Virtual Abbey, and author of many books, including Why Is There a Menorah on the Altar? and The Word Made Fresh.
